Menolyrical - Words for Words' Sake




This image was snatched at Montrose Harbour on the train from Aberdeen to Edinburgh.  It seemed nothing... and then...












grey the day
rattling by
battleship sea
silvered the sky
mottled carpet
dappled ceil
bridge with blue
under wheel
land is lost
between the two
silos blank
awaiting crew
all seems naught
twixt ‘n’ tween
till bright flash
of yellow seen
but the train
pulls us on
we blink and
the bright is gone

Crikey Aunty ...... how do you do that? I like the words better than the picture but I guess if the picture wasn't there I'd have trouble with the words, aye??
